Install Sun Java on unbuntu 10.x and newer

I got this answer from stackoverflow, but there are about another 20 or so answers on there and I keep having to sift through them all, so here is what worked for me:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

# uncomment the two lines referring to "partner"

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jdk

that should work..
